Convert 3DS to OBJ File

3DS to OBJ ......

The following resources are provided for your reference, focusing on the interoperability and exchange between 3DS and OBJ file formats. They are designed to assist you in the transition from 3DS to OBJ file.

3DS File 3DS

The 3DS (3D Studio) is a widely recognized format used for storing polygonal mesh models. It supports additional features such as model names, reusable geometry component instances, materials with transparent colors, and texture images. However, due to legacy constraints, 3DS model names are limited to 8 characters, and a single 3DS mesh object can only contain up to 32,767 triangles. As a result, when exporting to the 3DS file format, larger meshes must be divided into smaller shells. Our Autoconverter and Automesher Application 3DS file converters simplify this process, allowing you to effortlessly convert any 3D model into the 3DS format. This makes it easy to import your model into DIALux lighting software, which also supports 3DS file extension.


The OBJ (Alias Wavefront Object) is a text-based file format that is widely used for 3D geometry objects across various 3D software programs. The OBJ file format can store named group objects, surface materials with transparent colors and texture images, and geometry primitives in the form of quads or triangles. However, it’s important to note that during the OBJ file conversion using our Autoconverter software, any quad primitives will be simplified into two triangles, as only triangular facets are supported. Additionally, due to its textual format, OBJ files tend to have larger sizes compared to binary file formats like 3DS (3D Studio) or SKP (SketchUp).
